Abstract:

ABSTRACT The initiative described in this paper is an undergraduate module called Environmental Impacts of Business and Industry. It has been taught at Roehampton Institute London since 1994. Its aims include increasing student awareness of the workplace, developing understanding of how environmental policies interact with working practices and equipping students with skills for investigating and reporting employment-related environmental issues. Students conduct an environmental assessment of a site-specific business or industry and produce a 3000 word case study report which identifies environmental impacts and makes recommendations for improving environmental performance. The paper first describes the departmental/institutional context and the development of the module. It then considers the structure and content of the module and the selection of case studies-illustrating them by reference to some of the lecturing material and work produced by the students.
